BlueField-2 DPU supports high-speed compression acceleration. This feature allows the host to offload multiple compression/decompression jobs to the DPU.
Compress-class operations are supported in parallel to the net, vDPA, and RegEx class operations.
Configuring Compression Acceleration on BlueField-2
The compression application can run either from the host or Arm.
Before running the application from the host side, the user must run this command followed by system power cycle:
$ mlxconfig -d <mst device path> s INTERNAL_CPU_MODEL=0
